So in my last post I mentioned how the margarita jello shooters made me want an actual margarita I could sip on. I found a great recipe and wanted to record it here.

The main component is homemade sour mix. To make, dissolve 1/4 cup sugar in 1 cup hot water. Then add 3 tablespoons lemon juice and 3 tablespoons lime juice. Chill.

To make the margarita, mix the components using this ratio:

1 part triple sec
2 parts tequila
4 parts sour mix

I used a shaker and served on the rocks.

I had to share this as I came across it today!

Vicky, I saw that too (I follow her on my blogger RSS feed). I love that blog! I find it interesting that her recipe starts with unflavored gelatin... seems easier to just use lime flavored since you add lime juice anyway! But maybe her version tastes more authentic.

Good point on the unflavored gelatin! Seems like we could have fun experimenting!
